Allen Crabbe – officially with the Nets, a trade to the Hawks pending – was charged with DUI in June.

Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office:

An NBA player arrested last summer for driving under the influence entered a no contest plea today, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Allen Lester Crabbe III, 27, entered the plea to one misdemeanor count of engaging in a motor vehicle exhibition of speed on a highway.

Crabbe was immediately sentenced to three years of summary probation and ordered to complete DUI first offender and Mothers Against Drunk Driving programs.

Crabbe is now a free agent after a buyout with the Timberwolves. With this plea deal, he will likely avoid the two-game suspension typical of a drunk-driving conviction.
